HERE'S WHAT HAPPENS TO A MAN OF PRINCIPLE WHEN HE STEPS UP TO THE JUDGE'S BENCH: Attorney Marc Victor was appointed to a pro tem (unpaid) judge position in the Arizona courts. He was fired after one hour yesterday because he recused himself from drug cases. Judges recuse themselves all the time without having to give any reason (e.g. if they have a conflict of interest). But Victor did it because he believes the drug war is unconstitutional. He offered to trade with another judge for her non-drug cases.
Bam! One hour and out.
